Texas Cyclospora Outbreak Expands, More Lawsuits Filed

August 21, 2013 — An outbreak of Cyclospora food poisoning has sickened at least 598 people in 22 states. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provided an updated case count this morning that expanded the list of states to include Wyoming and South Dakota.

 

The CDC tally included only 250 cases in Texas, when the Texas Department of Public Health Services has reported 269 cases in the state since yesterday. Adding those cases to the CDC total would put the national total at 617.

Texas is the state with the most cases in the nation, but health officials have yet to name a source in the state. Health departments in Iowa and Nebraska have traced over 80% of cases in their state to the same pre-packaged salad mix imported by Taylor Farms de Mexico and sold in restaurants, including Olive Garden and Red Lobster. The same salad mix may have been sold at a wide variety of restaurants in Texas.

One of the most recent Texas Cyclospora lawsuits was filed by Kennon and Lyndsay Smith, who say they were infected with the Cyclospora parasite after eating at Bob’s Taco Station in Rosenberg, Texas. The restaurant allegedly served salad from Taylor Farms and Max Luna Produce.
